View In My Bible
23 'They 1came in and took possession of it, but they 2did not obey Your voice or 3walk in Your law; they have done nothing of all that You commanded them to do; therefore You have made 4all this calamity come upon them. 24 'Behold, the 5siege ramps have reached the city to take it; and the city is 6given into the hand of the Chaldeans who fight against it, because of the 7sword, the famine and the pestilence; and what You have spoken has 8come to pass; and behold, You see it. 25 'You have said to me, O Lord aGOD, "Buy for yourself the field with money and call in witnesses "-although the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.' " 26 Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the 9God of all flesh; is anything 10too difficult for Me?" 28 Therefore thus says the LORD, "Behold, I am about to 11give this city into the hand of the Chaldeans and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he will take it. 29 "The Chaldeans who are fighting against this city will enter and 12set this city on fire and burn it, with the 13houses where people have offered incense to Baal on their roofs and poured out drink offerings to other gods to provoke Me to anger. 30 "Indeed the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah have been doing only 14evil in My sight from their youth; for the sons of Israel have been only 15provoking Me to anger by the work of their hands," declares the LORD. 31 "Indeed this city has been to Me a 16provocation of My anger and My wrath from the day that they built it, even to this day, so that it should be 17removed from before My face, 32 because of all the evil of the sons of Israel and the sons of Judah which they have done to provoke Me to anger -they, their 18kings, their leaders, their priests, their prophets, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 33 "They have turned their back to Me and not their face; though I taught them, b19teaching again and again, they would not listen cand receive instruction.
